There are a handful of bands that truly rule the yule, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy is pretty much the king of the hill. Not only do they have a Christmas album called "Everything You Want for Christmas" (the Christmas album is mandatory if a band wants to make a run for ruling the season, and this one has a cover of "Mr. Heat Miser" -- bonus), but their swinging, cool-cat sound just fits with a lot of the raise-a-glass-of-cheer holiday standards, many of which were written in the era Big Bad Voodoo Daddy celebrates.
So the annual Noel concert? Very stylish, very seasonal, brimming with all things brassy and classy. Okay, maybe not totally classy -- this is, after all, the act that gave the world "You & Me & the Bottle Make Three Tonight," one of the best (and most damaged) love songs of the last 20 years -- but exceedingly hip. We can't wait to hear how they salute the jolly man in red.
